Ellie Goulding: Steal Her Style

This post may contain affiliate links*

It isn’t just Ellie Goulding’s sweet vocals and catchy pop tunes that we adore — her continually evolving sense of style has been capturing our attention recently too. Whether she’s gigging at the latest festival in leather shorts and a sporty t-shirt or gracing the red carpet in a show-stopping maxi dress, guitar girl Ellie Goulding always manages to look perfectly pulled together.

Ellie Goulding: Best Wearable Looks

Ellie Goulding is a big fan of working out with regular runs and yoga sessions, so it’s no surprise the British pop star is keen to show off the results of her hard work. Showcasing her toned legs in a tan mini dress, the Love Me Like You Do singer embraces this season’s must-wear fabric: suede. Accessorized with a simple leather jacket and ankle booties, Ellie’s down-to-earth ensemble is perfect for your off-duty days. When you wear this combo, you can impress by saying, “this? I just threw it together.” Yeah, that line is cliche, but who cares?

Lace-up Maxi Dress

Lace-up detailing has been a big story this season, and Ellie proves that it doesn’t have to be super-tricky to wear. A black maxi dress with lace-up detailing is an easy way to update a staple style. Dress up with heels and sparkly accessories for evening, or pair with ankle boots and a bomber jacket to dress down the look.

Tailored Suit

Ellie proves a tailored suit can be just as glam as a party dress. Wearing a nude tailored jacket and trousers for a recent music awards event, Ellie allowed her statement suit to do the talking by keeping the accessories to a minimum. While Ellie opted to wear the blazer alone, this look is a little glam for everyday wear. For a more wearable take, choose a simple silk camisole for under the jacket.

Printed T-Shirt and Leather Shorts

While Ellie often dresses up for red carpet occasions, the singer appears to be most comfortable in more tomboy-inspired outfits. Printed t-shirts, shorts and grungy ankle boots have become Ellie’s go-to look for stage performances. If you prefer to show less flesh, wear your shorts over leggings. Or, pair your printed t-shirt with skinny jeans and a hoodie when it’s chilly outside.

Her style is more of a toned down edgy look, but trendy! I love that recommendation of the oversized shirt; huge fan of Jeremy Scott. :)
